I just finished a long download of the RedHat 9 iso files from ftp.redhat.com and created my installation disk. I also used the MD5 checksum after the download and they verified OK. The problem I am encountering is that once the install starts I encounter the following error and the install craters:
error 2 reading header: cpio: Bad magic
The hardware is as follows:
Pentium III 550MHz
384 MB RAM
Intel i440BX chipset
Primary IDE controller - 20G IDE Hard Drive – No partitions defined
Secondary IDE controller - Toshiba CD-ROM drive
I have tried burning new CD/ROM disk at the slowest speed but incur the same exact error.
I have Mandrake 8.2 install CD/ROM that will install with no problem on this same machine.
I am at a lost as to what the issue might be and what to try next in an attempt to get this installed.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
